A blog for Meadowridge School and the educational community.
“Community” was a value that stuck with Bryanne Childress (née Newbery) after graduating from Meadowridge in 2011. Growing up in the Meadowridge community ultimately inspired her to pursue a career in education. As a Meadowridge Lifer, she credits the school for shaping her calling as an outdoor educator.
When Jenny Yu stepped onto campus for the first time, she saw more than a school. After a year away from her daughter—a consequence of the pandemic, lockdowns and travel bans—she had a different appreciation for the school than most. Meadowridge was a place that had cared for not only her daughter’s academic success but also her mental health and wellbeing during what was a unique and challenging time. Jenny knew she had plenty of people to thank and so much to be grateful for.
Meadowridge has reached an exciting moment: the school has received its inaugural bequest, generously committed by former teacher Cathy Graetz and her husband, Andy. This meaningful gift, though yet to be realized, holds a special place for us. Keep reading to learn more about their intention behind this planned gift and why it encourages others to consider similar acts of generosity!
Christine Lai and Kai Cheng had many pleasant surprises during their first year at the school. In mere months, the family of four grew into a much larger seven-hundred-and-something. As they put it, Meadowridge was “one big family”.
We checked in with Melissa Orser, '08 to learn more about her journey to becoming a Business Owner & Medical Esthetician at LIFT Skin Health & Laser.
We are excited to welcome four new staff and faculty to the Meadowridge Community for the 2023/24 school year.
Around the beginning of the new school year, parents head over to our Head of School’s home for Parent Socials. Find out why Parent Socials are a wonderful opportunity to build connections and create a supportive network.
’08 Alumni and Berlin resident, Christopher Danforth has a few travel tips for those who have plans to travel to his vibrant city. Here’s a list of the top 5 things you have to try while visiting Berlin, according to Chris.
We interviewed Meadowridge alumnus, Roy Zhao ‘19 on his research project, "A Semi-Analytic Model of High-Redshift Dust Attenuation of Galaxies During the Epoch of Reionization" which received the Dean’s Prize for Excellence in Research at UCLA.
Throughout his educational journey at Meadowridge, Chris was an exceptional writer and history buff. Naturally, after graduating from the School in 2008, he began studying history at Carleton University.
